That means it's in the clutches of TCM, probably never to be seen again. Thanks, Moongleam.

TCM plays "The Mysterious Island" quite a lot. Record it off there. I did.

My children and I recently watched MI - rolling on the floor laughter
TCM is one of my fav. " channels " . Robert Osborne is a small demi-god
Am I about to be hammered ?

Don’t get me started on TCM. We would be here all day. However I am glad to hear "The Mysterious Island" is being cablecast often. Unfortunately recording it isn't an option, since my community-based, non-profit cable system doesn't carry TCM. Ah, the joys of the boondocks!

I haven't had cable or broadcast TV in twenty years! The only time I ever turn on the TV is to watch a DVD.

Barely! :)

Everyone I know seems stunned when I tell them we have no cable or broadcast TV, and I have no videogames other than the Solitaire and Mahjonng on my PC. No Playstation, X-Box or Wii in this house. No MP3 players or iPhones, just a cheap cell phone for emergencies. When I really retire I'll get rid of everything but a few books, a few CDs, and the cat, and we'll move to a little place faaaaar away from the city. Ah, peace!

So I'm a Luddite...sue me! ;)

Same here, going on 5 years. A tv but no cable, satellite or aerial hookup. We use the set to watch DVDs, and to display the video output of a laptop to watch internet-based media such as IA feature films. I'm done with commercial tv. Whatever's worth watching comes out on DVD soon enough, and then I can get caught up if I want to. But most of what I really enjoy is right here (thanks to billbarstad, moongleam, guyzilla, k-otic, and everyone else!)
